Sam is one of the founding members of Adrenaline Addicts. In 2014, he and Christian, the other founding member, departed on a round-the-world trip, intending to cross six continents in five years. He spent the first nine months of the trip on the north coast of Colombia, bought a motorbike and traveled as far south as Peru, then returned to the north with Christian, where they founded the company. Prior to starting Adrenaline Addicts, Sam worked as a motorcycle instructor in the United States for several years before combining that passion with his love of Colombia.
Christian is the second founding member of Adrenaline Addicts. He traveled extensively throughout Colombia in 2014 and 2015 both together with Sam, and by himself, he worked for several adventure tour companies along the way before teaming back up with Sam in early 2016 to start the company. Prior to Adrenaline Addicts, Christian rode extensively around off-road and motocross trails throughout the United States, giving him a completely different riding background and skill set to his original business partner, complementing each other perfectly.
Brayden is the third business partner of Adrenaline Addicts. In 2015, he traveled and worked as a volunteer in Peru and Ecuador, and he discovered a love for Latin America. He made plans to visit Colombia and started his own business. Brayden met Sam and Christian in late 2016, six months after the other two had begun operations. After he worked together for several months with Sam and Christian, the three made the decision to bring on Brayden as the third partner. Prior to joining Adrenaline Addicts, Brayden has ridden for almost 10 years in Australia, parts of Asia, and South America.

I joined the guys for one day of a four day trip with a bunch of other riders who are very experienced with this sort of riding. I on the other hand ride on roads and have never been off road on terrain like this before and I had a passenger on my bike which was not a good idea. So, I wiped out and we fell hard, cut ourselves up and hurt my ankle but, I do not regret it. I am a motorcyclist and next time I am in the area I will absolutely do this again but without a passenger. The short amount of time we were out was a lot of fun and we saw some pretty cool stuff. The people in charge all seem like caring good guys who are enjoying what they do. Even though our adventure was cut short, I highly recommend you taking an adventure with these guys and I will absolutely return for another shot.
Holy cow where to start?! An absolute EPIC 3 day trip with Chris and Ben along the Colombian coast and jungle! I did the trip with my mom and dad and we had the most INCREDIBLE time! This is an absolute MUST in South America let alone Colombia and Santa Marta. The riding, the sites, the mud, the amazing views, the comfy hostels, delightful food, new friends, doggies and endless memories. Thank you so so much Chris, Ben and the man who made it all happen Brayden for a absolute trip of a lifetime!
